The Taliban has said that Afghan universities will be segregated by gender, and that a new Islamic dress code will be introduced.

Higher Education Minister Abdul Baqi Haqqani said women would be allowed to study, but not alongside men and  announced a review of subjects.

Women and girls were banned having education under Taliban rule between 1996 and 2001but now said they will not prevent women from going to school or working.

The Taliban seized power on 15th August and since they have asked all women, except those in the public health sector, to stay away from work, until the security situation improves.

Yesterday’s announcement of the higher education policy comes a day after the Taliban raised their flag over the presidential palace.
